Announcing the release of Video Networks by Garrett Lynch:


and the collaborative two channel video installation, Dialogues by
Garrett Lynch and Frédérique Santune:



Video Networks is a research project consisting of the development of
an electronic interface system for enabling the creation of networked
or connected video based art works and the works produced with this

It's purpose is to explore the potential of creating works which are
cinematic in nature yet break away from fixed linear narratives to
explore concepts such as montage, collage, mixing, rhythm, looping,
non-linearity in combination with simple interactivity in real time.

The interface system employs a combination of reverse engineered
inexpensive consumer electronics and some custom hardware to enable
devices such as DVD players, monitors, video cameras, projectors etc.
to communicate, in effect network and influence each other.

The first work employing the prototype system, entitled Dialogues, is a
two channel video installation conceived and created by artists Garrett
Lynch (http://www.asquare.org/) and Frédérique Santune
(http://www.saturne-feerique.net/) which explores ideas of exploration,
mapping and translation will be followed by subsequent thematic
explorations using the interface system.

Video Networks has been partially funded by Canterbury Christ Church
University and has been developed in cooperation with the Department of
Electronics at the University of Kent.
